Awards to Recognise Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility Launched

Chambers Ireland Tuesday (03/03/15) announced that the application process for the 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards is open. The awards recognise the work being carried out by companies of all sizes to improve the lives of their employees, the local community and the environment. This is a unique competition that offers the business community a chance to promote their efforts in CSR and gain recognition for best practice.

Speaking today, John Cunningham, Chair of the CSR Awards judging panel said, “Having chaired the judging panel for a number of years, I continue to be surprised by the exceptional ways that businesses are embracing CSR. Businesses in Ireland are unique in their unwavering commitment to running their businesses in a responsible and sustainable manner. These awards are an opportunity to recognise this hard work and dedication and to highlight best practice so that others can follow in their footsteps.”

Tina Roche, Business in the Community Ireland Chief Executive continued, “The awards continue to go from strength to strength and each year we see how companies are enhancing and improving their sustainability strategies and embedding Corporate Responsibility at the heart of their business. Businesses are increasingly committed to the belief that customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it. By adopting this embedded and sustained approach to corporate responsibility, companies are yielding the noticeable advantages it can have on the bottom line. These awards champion this practice which is integral to Ireland’s business reputation.”

Theo Cullinane, BAM Group Ireland Chief Executive said “Sustainability is one of the core tenets of our business and we work closely with our employees, clients, stakeholders and supply chain on all aspects of CSR. We’re very proud to sponsor the CSR Awards, an initiative that promotes responsible business throughout Ireland. I’d like to wish all entrants and everybody in Chambers Ireland and Business in the Community the very best of luck for this year’s awards.”

Award categories include: Excellence in Environment, Community (divided into Charity, Volunteering and Community Programme), Workplace, Marketplace, International CSR, CSR Communication, Best SME and the overall Outstanding Achievement in CSR Award.

Now in their twelfth year, the awards were launched in Dublin Castle. The awards are run in association with the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, partnered by Business in the Community Ireland and kindly sponsored by BAM Group Ireland.
